Microsoft Store to Offer LTE Data Plans for eSIM PCs | News & Opinion

Part of what makes an LTE-equipped Apple iPad so appealing is that you can activate a cellular data plan from major carriers in the US and abroad directly from the tablet’s Settings app, skipping an annoying phone conversation with a customer service representative. Microsoft plans to bring a similarly easy process for buying cellular data to its app store around the same time a new crop of always-connected laptops go on sale, Microsoft General Manager Erin Chapple told PCMag this…

Microsoft plans to bring native 64-bit apps to Qualcomm-powered PCs, but it’ll take time

Windows PCs that use the battery-sipping Qualcomm Snapdragon ARM processor are just beginning to roll out, but they include some major caveats. One of them, the inability to run 64-bit apps, doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. According to a Microsoft representative, the company will “share more details” on  a preview of its ARM64 software development kit (SDK) at its Build developer conference at the beginning of May. It’s unclear when the preview version of the SDK will…

Expect 24 Nvidia Max-Q Gaming Laptops This Year | News & Opinion

Many more laptops will offer the 3x performance while being 3x thinner Max-Q promises. Until last year, opting to buy a gaming laptop meant accepting the extra weight, much more audible fan noise, and an all-round bulkier case to fit the required cooling inside. However, in June 2017, Nvidia launched Max-Q, which promised to drastically increase the performance of gaming laptops while keeping them as thin as a MacBook Air. While the combination of high performance and very thin seemed…

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin Review & Rating

The MSI GS65 Stealth Thin (starts at $1,799; $1,999 as tested) is the first laptop with the eighth-generation “Coffee Lake” processor to pass through our labs. Built with Nvidia’s Max-Q technology to fit a tuned-down GTX 1070 graphics card into a thin chassis, it’s a solid HD gaming laptop with a long-lasting battery. And the beefed-up processor shows its strength in our testing. If you can overlook the build quality, which is flimsier than it should be for this price,…

Dell’s updated XPS 15 could crush the MacBook Pro 15—again

Know why the MacBook Pro 15 is so thin? It’s because of all the times Dell’s powerhouse XPS 15 has stomped on it. Yes, that’s a cheap shot, but it’s been mostly true—and Apple’s beatdown will only get worse as the newest XPS 15 (model 9570) ups the ante to a 6-core, 12-thread Core i7-8750H. Part of Intel’s new enthusiast-class “Coffee Lake H” series of chips, the Core i7-8750H is essentially a mobile version of Intel’s powerful Core i7-8700K chip.…

Dell’s G Series laptops are priced for every gamer

Dell’s launching its G Series of gaming laptops with every gamer in mind, from entry-level to more advanced users. Dell knows that not everyone can afford high-end models like, say, the Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 (sold by Dell’s Alienware division), also announced Tuesday, which start around $1,500. With prices starting at $749, Dell’s G3, G5, and G7 product lines are far more affordable, yet they still carve out room for features including some of Intel’s latest quad-core and hex-core mobile…
